  WHAT’S LIVING IN Lee LIKE?

Lee isn’t flashy, it isn’t ostentatious, and that is exactly what the residents want. Instead, this gem puts the focus on community and quality of life. You’ll be able to find a place to live here fairly quickly and at an affordable price. This neighborhood is an excellent choice for families since it's got a great school system.

Many of the newest residents here are professionals and young families that want a place to settle down for the long run. With them has come an influx of restaurants, cafes, and shops.

Most of the homes are Victorian style terraces, semi-detached, and detached homes, but there are new developments popping up here and there. You’ll also find some flats in period conversions, though some of those homes are being converted back into single family dwellings. The rental market here isn’t as strong because people who come to Lee are generally looking to buy.

From chain restaurants to fine cuisine, there are a number of options for food, including many ethnic places. There’s a nice mixture of pubs as well and many host live acoustic performances.

For green thumbs, there is a group dedicated to keeping the community beautiful and planting trees around town.

Lee is bordered on the north by Blackheath, on the east by Eltham, on the south by Grove Park, and on the west by Catford and Hither Green.
